The problems presented by overdiagnosing

Medical mistakes made by providers in Providence and throughout the rest of the country can have a significant financial impact on the healthcare market. Information shared from the Institute of Medicine in a report by the diagnostic management company Premerus estimates that dealing with cases of medical negligence and misdiagnosis costs between $17 to $29 billion every year. These costs can potentially be felt across the market.

Woman alleges poor prenatal care led to child’s birth injury

Most in Providence would probably assume that cases involving a birth injury would be limited to actions or inactions that occurred during the actual birthing process. Yet many view the probability of a successful delivery as having a direct correlation to the quality of prenatal care that an expectant mother received from her obstetrician. If a woman felt as her doctor was guilty of errors, misjudgments, or simple negligence during the prenatal period, she may draw the conclusion that such issues contributed to circumstances which endangered the health and safety of both she and her baby during delivery.

Why should you have a primary care physician?

It may seem to people in Providence as though cases regarding medical malpractice seem to dominate today’s headlines. This may lead to a loss of faith in the healthcare system as a whole. This presents an a potentially complicated dilemma: you’re of course encouraged to seek medical attention for those injuries and ailments that can’t heal without intervention, yet concerns over the quality of that care or the potential for further problems may cause you even greater stress. One way to help resolve such a dilemma is by having a primary care physician.

Many of the people from Providence we speak with here at DeLuca & Weizenbaum, Ltd. fear the prospect of an extended hospital stay. Yet when the body needs time to recover, a hospital can be the ideal place to begin such a recovery. That’s not to say, however, that staying in a hospital is without any risks.
